Last week I was doing a nostalgic trip by watching Rayearth OVA. Of all the characters I love the character Fuu Hououji the most. Her power to summon the Rune God of wind WINDAM and use wind as her weapon.
LAst tuesday I watched a show about SUPER TORNADOES in discovery channel, I had more insight on how destructive the power nature can be. It just saddens me how many lives were affected by these natural occurrences.
Last night I was immersed in watching this 2007 Sci Fi Channel miniseries 'Tin Man' at FOX channel. Its a loosely based story based on the Wizard of Oz. I was captivated by the story and especially the character of Grey Gale. Coincidentally Dorothy in Wizard of Oz was taken to Oz by a tornado. Talk about aligning inspirations.
Inspired by the characters, of mother nature's tornadoes, and the name Grey Gale itself: here is a look that is a tribute to the series and of the awesome power of nature's winds.
Dorothy Gale-type character (called "D.G.") was played by Zooey Deschanel, while Dorothy Gale herself (a separate character) makes a brief appearance, played by Grace Wheeler. D.G. travels to the land of "The Outer Zone" (or "O.Z." for short), where she finds out that she and her sister Azkadellia are descendants of Dorothy Gale through their mother Queen Lavender Eyes. Ahamo, DG's father, tells DG that Dorothy Gale is her "greatest great grandmother." Dorothy Gale is legendary, and known as the first 'Slipper' (a title rather than an object) to slip to the Outer Zone. In the third episode of the miniseries, DG meets the original Dorothy Gale in a netherworld located within Gale's crypt which is reminiscent of Gale's farm as depicted in the 1939 film.
